: : Any idea as to the etymology of the term "head shop"? Thanks for any clues.

: "Head Shops" existed way back a long time ago in the mid to late sixties.
: They catered to a customer who liked to feed his or her head with mind or mood altering substances.

On a trip to Amsterdam recently I noticed that they are still thriving there.
